    Pros

    Working with some professional people, Interaction with Clients might bring you exposure and a push to another better job at client site.

    Cons

    Too long working hours, benefits and perks are decreasing each year, politics involved in everything, decisions are based on intuition instead of market's best practice and processes and patterns, lack of professionalism at all levels, there are always an emergency mode before each release, etc ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to eliminate politics, provide management training for young managers and try to hire managers instead of good engineers, support education.

    Pros

    Pas grand chose à dire. Les compétences du développeur moyen sont assez bonnes. Le salaire est bon pour un premier travail.

    Not a lot to say. Average competence of developer is quite good. The pay is good for a starting job.

    Cons

    Ils utilisent une vieille technologie de c++, le logiciel de construction ne fonctionne tout simplement pas. Il y a une forte perte de temps à cause de cela. D'un point de vue pratique, les cadres ne se préoccupent pas de la qualité du logiciel mais seulement des aperçus pour les clients.

    Use very old technology of c++, the software build system just doesn't work: no incremental build. Waste quite a lot of time every day because of that. Practically, the management layer doesn't really care the software quality. All they want is good demos to client.

    Pros

    Le salaire est en dessus de la moyenne de l'industrie avec quelques autres avantages sociaux. Leader dans l'industrie de logiciels financiers

    Pay is above industry average with some other fringe benefits. Leader in the financial software industry

    Cons

    Longues heures de travail, excessivement politique, derrière les meilleures pratiques de l'industrie. Utilise de vieilles technologies. Siège à Paris et c'est là que sont prises les décisions, donc les gens y sont plus valorisé que ceux des autres sites.

    Long work hours, excessivly political, behind industry best practices. Uses old technologies. HQ in Paris and this is where the decisions take place so people there are more valued than those in other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honnêtement aucun conseil car la direction est consciente de tous les points forts et les points faibles. L'entreprise se porte bien et c'est la chose importante pour eux.

    Honestly no advice because management is aware of all pros and cons. The company is doing well and that is the important part for them.

    Pros

    Bon environnement de travail avec des avantages exceptionnels (peut-être trop pour ce qu’on fait dans son travail quotidien). Les bonus sont des multiples de 2 500, et on peut avoir jusqu’à six mois (du moment qu’on reste tard au travail, c’est-à-dire apr

    good environment with exceptional benefits (may be too much for what we do in our daily work). bonus are multiple of 2,5k and you can get till 6 months (provided you stay late at work, that is after 8pm)

    Cons

    – Pour avoir une promotion ou un bon parcours, il faut rester tard
    – On n’apprend pas la finance, mais les trucs de Murex

    - to have a promotion or a good hike, you have to stay late
    - you don't learn finance but murex stuff

    Pros

    C'est un environnement avec des personnes hautement qualifiées, très intelligentes et qui savent ce qu'elles font.

    This is environment with high qualified people, very intelligent people who knows what they do

    Cons

    Très mauvaise gestion, les Séniors ne savent pas comment traiter les gens, la communication et la gestion sont très mauvaises. Les Sénior qui sont à Murex depuis plusieurs années essayent juste de garder leur place et il y a trop d'argent en jeu ainsi que la direction est égoiste et veux juste gagner ses bonus.

    Very poor management , Senior people don't know how to treat people, the communication at the management level is very poor. Senior people who has spent a long time in Murex just try to keep their place and too much money involved so people at the management level are just selfish in order to gain their bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ll faudrait remplacer les managers, être ingénieur n'est pas compatible avec les compétences de direction. Cette société devrait donc embaucher des managers.

    Managers should be replaced , being an engineer is incompatible with management skills . So the company should employ managers.
